Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif on Friday wrote to the interior secretary asking for the provision of security to all parliamentarians on April 3 when voting on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan will take place.
The letter reads that “it is the legal responsibility of the interior secretary to provide security to all the parliamentarians”. Shehbaz Sharif also quoted PM Khan’s statement of calling in 100,000 party workers on the no-confidence day.
Previously, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Ahmed Chaudhry tweeted about increasing the premier’s security as there was a possible risk of his assassination.
He said that security agencies had discovered a plot of the prime minister’s assassination. “Following these reports, the government has decided to beef up the security of the prime minister,” he had added.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is facing a hard time for its survival amid the opposition’s efforts for the success of the no-confidence motion tabled against PM Khan. The no-trust move has now been transformed into a political controversy after the prime minister termed it a foreign-imported conspiracy to destabilize the country.
